ReedI earned my bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Southern California. Over the years I have worked with students of all ages to help them improve their skills. I've been an assistant teacher in a math and reading academy where I was able to work with grade school children. As a college student I worked with inner-city students in a specialty program where I learned to design effective lesson plans that included academic lessons and real world experiential content. My primary focus as a tutor is math and science. Some of the courses I tutor include algebra 1 & 2, calculus 1-3, differential equations, geometry, elementary math, middle school math, pre-calculus, trigonometry, physics, writing, competition math, multivariable calculus, arithmetic, finite mathematics, mechanical engineering, pre-algebra, public speaking, and English. My teaching philosophy all comes down to instilling a love of learning in those I work with. I take my time to really get to know each child so that I have a clear picture of their academic strengths and weaknesses as well as their personality and interests. This allows me to narrow down the concepts they are struggling with and introduce new ways to help them conceptualize the content in a way that makes it more easily accessible to them.

NathanielI'm currently tutoring professionally at American River College, where I help students learn math and computer science topics. I'm looking forward to tutoring students in algebra, geometry, elementary and middle school level math, pre-calculus, trigonometry, calculus, chemistry, computer coding, and others. My interests include electronics and coding.

GaryI have 30 years of experience as a professional editor and writer of magazines, and I've been tutoring for the past six years at the college and high school levels. I'm a communications consultant, running my own business in the field. I've also spent the past 12 years teaching humanities, film analysis, critical thinking, and writing as an adjunct professor. I believe the best way for students to become better writers is to practice. I work alongside students to identify where their writing needs improvement, and then I put together exercises to help them hone those skills. I also provide encouragement and support along with recognition so that students see their own progress and develop confidence in their abilities. When I have free time, I like to watch sports, go to the theater, hike, garden, and travel.
